My name is Rob. I am 23. I picked up the bass three years ago in an effort to improve my singing, but I have since fallen in love with the instrument, and now sing and play the bass. I prefer the genres of goth and gothic metal, but have a healthy appreciation for all genres. I love to learn and to talk to people with common interests, so just let me know if you feel like talking, or if I can help you with anything.

It's a lot easier to hit a note if you know what it sounds like, now isn't it? It also helps with rhythm. It makes song writing a lot easier as well. I wouldn't have thought it that perplexing...
